Shomrei Arts and Music Program Presents Verlon Thompson
We are thrilled to announce that singer/songwriter/performer Verlon Thompson has offered to perform at CST on Sunday, March 26 at 4pm!
Thirty years as a professional songwriter and traveling troubadour serve as Verlon's credentials. As a solo performer, and as the trusted sidekick of Texas Americana songwriting icon Guy Clark, Verlon has viewed the world from stages everywhere from Barcelona to Binger (his hometown in Oklahoma).
Along the way Verlon Thompson compositions have been recorded by Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson, Anne Murray, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Del McCoury, Sam Bush, Trisha Yearwood and many more.
Equally important in his songwriting and live performances, Verlon's guitar work cannot go unnoticed. His guitar can be heard on recordings by Restless Heart, Pam Tillis, and many more, including, and especially Guy Clark.
Verlon has co-produced Guy Clark's Grammy nominated CD "Cold Dog Soup" as well as "The Dark", "Workbench Songs" and "Somedays the Song Writes You".
As the in-house musician for Genuine Human Productions (genuinehuman.com) Thompson scores themes and background music for documentaries and special film projects.
Verlon Thompson is currently on the road. Or in the studio. Or writing in his bunkhouse on the river in Tennessee....but never far from the fertile plains of Oklahoma.
Verlon has had songs recorded by:
- Balladeers: Kenny Rogers, Anne Murray, Barbara Mandrell.
- Bluegrassers: Del McCoury Band, Sam Bush.
- Country Girls: Pam Tillis, Trisha Yearwood, Suzy Bogguss.
- Country Boys: Dierks Bentley, Randy Travis, Joe Diffie,Tracy Byrd, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
- Folk Troubadours: Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker, Ramblin Jack Elliott.
Please join us as we enjoy this amazing musical talent and entertainer on Sunday, March 26, at 4:00 PM at Congregation Shomrei Torah. This show is appropriate for all ages.
